The shocking truth about Heidi Cruz

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There is some jaw-dropping new information out regarding Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi…read below for details.

Heidi Cruz does NOT oppose national sovereignty !

Conspiracy theorists would have us believe that Heidi Cruz opposes national sovereignty and instead believes in a continental governmental structure, which would erase the boundaries between Canada, the United States, and Mexico and establish lawmaking under an EU-type structure.

Here is what actually happened:

In 2005, the Independent Task Force on North America produced a report based on the work and research of 31 members. Heidi Cruz was a member and provided economic contributions.

In reading the actual report, it is hardly nefarious or frightening. Cruz offered the following commentary, emphasizing the role of the free market:

I support the Task Force report and its recommendations aimed at building a safer and more prosperous North America. Economic prosperity and a world safe from terrorism and other security threats are no doubt inextricably linked. While governments play an invaluable role in both regards, we must emphasize the imperative that economic investment be led and perpetuated by the private sector. There is no force proven like the market for aligning incentives, sourcing capital, and producing results like financial markets and profit-making businesses. This is simply necessary to sustain a higher living standard for the poorest among us—truly the measure of our success. As such, investment funds and financing mechanisms should be deemed attractive instruments by those committing the capital and should only be developed in conjunction with market participants.

Not quite a call for a New World Order, is it?

Heidi Cruz is NOT a puppet of the CFR!

“I respect Richard Haass (President of the Council on Foreign Relations), who’s on your show a lot. And I like him a lot. I have a few people that I really like and respect.”-Donald J. Trump on MSNBC

I posted the above quote to highlight how hypocritical it is for Trump supporters to attack Heidi Cruz.

Yes, Heidi Cruz was once a member of the CFR, a major foreign policy think tank. She was, and is no longer. As Ted Cruz explained in an interview, Heidi was a term member and one of the few conservatives there.

Here is the definition of a term member, according to the CFR:

The Stephen M. Kellen Term Member Program encourages promising young leaders in government, media, nongovernmental organizations, law, business, finance, and academia to engage in a sustained conversation on international affairs and U.S. foreign policy. The program allows these younger members to interact with seasoned foreign-policy experts and participate in a wide variety of events designed especially for them. Each year a new class of term members, between the ages of 30 and 36, is elected to a five-year membership term.

There is nothing wrong with joining an organization for the purpose of advancing your career and trying to bring about positive change in the process-that is why people such as Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Ben Sasse, and others ran for the U.S. Senate.

There are a lot of bad people at the CFR, but if we condemn good people for being successful, then we are admitting defeat from the onset.

Heidi Cruz is NOT a corrupt shill for Goldman Sachs!

Before we dive into this, we need to step back and look at the expertise of Heidi Cruz. She has a undergraduate degree in economics, a masters of European Business degree, and an M.B.A from Harvard. In short, she is really bright when it comes to numbers and money.

Where is someone with such skills and education likely to work? A bank of course. And Cruz has worked for three: JP Morgan Chase, Merrill Lynch, and Goldman Sachs.

Without getting too much into detail, yes you can certainly make the case that Goldman Sachs is too closely connected with the Treasury Department and Federal Reserve. Crony capitalism is always bad, and it should be condemned as such.

But the fact that Cruz works for Goldman Sachs (along with about 37,000 other people) does not make her corrupt. Contrary to many conspiracy articles, she is not the VP of the bank. After working for the bank for seven years, she was promoted to be the regional head of the Southwest United States for the Investment Management Division.

Heidi Cruz is not on the board of directors, she is not an executive officer, and she is not a member of the management committee. In other words, she is in no position to be making shady deals behind closed doors.

Addendum: Ted Cruz’s record is one we can trust.

Ted Cruz has fought for our national sovereignty.

In addition, Ted Cruz hasn’t done a thing in the Senate that would specifically benefit Goldman Sachs.
